This Means the Secret World (Weekly Links)

Links to reviews I wrote this week for the Herald, and etc.

The Secret World of Arrietty. “Enchanting.”

This Means War. “The bromance of a pair of well-groomed American spies.”

Thin Ice. “A fitfully compelling Northern comedy-gothic.”

Richard Garriott: Man on a Mission. “There are nerds, and then there is Richard Garriott.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about singers who’ve made the transition to movie star, and a few who tried it the other way ’round. Archived here; the movie bit kicks in around the 16-minute mark.

At What a Feeling!, a week of Oscar-winning 1980s films concludes with a 1985 piece on John Huston’s Prizzi’s Honor.

On Sunday, Feb. 19th, at 2 p.m., come by the Frye Art Museum for “Flowers of Asia: Tradition and Modernity in Recent Asian Film,” a talk in the Magic Lantern series focusing on four important filmmakers from Taiwan and China. Details here; the talk is free.
